While most of our attention these days is focused on the COVID-19 crisis, there are other things that are important, too. Like protecting our community from wildfire.
We caught up with Valley Center Fire Marshal Jim Davidson this week and he pointed out something that is obvious, but still alarming: “There’s a tremendous amount of growth and fuel,” he said. “The weather timing was perfect for that, with the amount of rain stretched out. The rain means that everyone’s mowing will have to keep going on. Some of the grasses are starting to turn brown already.”
Yes, while all this year’s rain has been welcome, it does have a downside.
When grasses turn brown that’s a prelude to them becoming perfect little tinderboxes, just waiting for a spark to ignite them and the wind to whip them into a wildfire.
Everyday more and more news about this years wild fire threat during our Covid-19 Pandemic but nothing seems to change in how we plan on fighting these future wild fire other than send more young firefighters into harms way now its a double harms way.
The Roadrunner asked about the use of drones to inspect properties. “That has come up,” said the fire marshal. “Unfortunately, I’m not sure how people would react.” Also, the district doesn’t have the resources right now to use drones. “We’d need to hire a company that does this, like SDG&E does with their poles.”
